      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

I assume you are fishing walleyes if you are using lindys. I like a four foot snell, a half ounce sinker and in southern Minnesota lakes in water ten feet deep or more I fish almost straight down most of the time, keeping the weight about a foot off the bottom and dropping it slowly to the bottom every 30 seconds or so and lifting it back up so the bait stays about 6 inches off the bottom and has an erratic motion. The half ounce allows you to easily tell where the bait is is; it's harder with less weight. Most of the time with lindys you do not want a spinner because the speed it takes to work a spinner is too fast for fishing a lindy, especially with a leech. I never use spinners with lindys unless I am fishing a river or stained water, then I might.) Keep in mind that it is easy to fish a lindy too fast, it is almost impossible to fish one too slow.

Norselander put you right on the target. The only thing I would add that as you become more experienced with this style of set-up, the lighter the weight you'll want to use. The least amount of weight correlates into the least amount of resistance. Couple that with a good rod and those 'eyes don't stand a chance. smirk.gif

Plain hook or floater are both applicable. It really depends how far you want your presentation off the bottom.

Depth of water can vary but typically this is a presentation designed for 10+' of water. Time of day can be any time.
